(Desert Senna, Feathery Cassia)

Fluffy gray foliage and a desert-hardy constitution make this one of the most widely grown shrubs in hot, arid landscapes. It is a native of the nearly waterless terrain of inland Australia. The very thin needle like leaves create a truly fine-textured mass that is a dramatically feathery and soft contrast when placed among boulders or beside against hard architecture. It is proven desert hardy, even thriving in parking lots and medians where reflected heat can be intense.

(Sturt's Senna)

The gray foliage of this plant is more coarse than its parent species, but plants retain the same cast iron desert hardy constitution. It is a native of dry and nearly waterless terrain of inland Australia. The short grey leaves produce a textured mass that stands out strongly against dark backgrounds. It is proven so desert hardy as to thrive in parking lots and medians where reflected heat can be intense.

Under ideal conditions this plant bears blooms year around, but these are sparse and...

(Rambling Senna)

This elegant, sprawling tropical shrub is a carefree choice for a flowering background in warm-climate gardens. It is native to well-drained soils of South America and has proven perfect for tropics and dry, frost-free climates elsewhere, such as the American Southwest and Florida. If killed back by an unusual cold snap, this plant recovers well from the roots. While typically used as a shrub, it can grow large enough to prune into an attractive small accent tree.

Lovely buttercup-shaped, soft...

(Argentine Senna)

This may be the most floriferous and lush species of this clan, which makes it a superior vigorous shrub for warm climate gardens. This plant is native to Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay where it is quite famous for its vigor and heavy flowering. It is well adapted to tropical climates, but also dry climates if watered. It makes a superior background shrub due to greater width than height if left to its natural form.

This plant blooms heavily with bright yellow single flowers at the branch tips....

(Mexican Senna)

Deep green leaves make an excellent background to the yellow blossoms on the Mexican senna. This variable evergreen shrub, rarely a small tree, is found naturally across a wide expanse of the Caribbean and adjacent parts of North America, including Florida, the Bahamas and southeastern Mexico. Multiple natural varieties of this species exist across its native range, giving rise to numerous common names.

Mexican senna may grow as a rather low, spreading shrub to a more erect tall shrub or small...

(Australian Senna, Desert Senna)

Soft, green, feathery foliage distinguishes this desert-hardy shrub. Though green, it is among the toughest and most beautiful of shrubs for hot, arid gardens. It is a native of dry regions of inland Australia. The needle-like leaves create a truly fine-textured mass that makes a welcome soft contrast against hard walls or among boulders. It is very tough, even thriving in parking lots and medians where reflected heat can be intense.

From midwinter to late spring, the bold yellow blossoms of these...

The foliage is fine-textured. Each compound leaf comprises numerous slender oval leaflets in perfectly matched pairs. Each leaflet is glossy dark green. Anytime from early spring to early summer, branch tips...

(Desert Cassia, Retama Prieta)

Desert cassia wows people with its feathery branches and arching canopy dotted with bright yellow blossoms. Bees and butterflies are equally enamored and flit and flutter across its fragrant blooming boughs. Though its common name suggests desert origins, this small shrubby tree is actually a maritime species native to Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. Wild specimens can be found growing in moist open upland forests.

The fully evergreen desert cassia has fine feathery compound leaves with...

(Splendid Senna)

Year round flowering makes this tropical shrub a focal point in mild-winter regions. Splendid senna is native to Brazil but is now grown far and wide because of its natural vigor and heavy flowering displays. It is well adapted to the American Tropics and virtually frost-free, dry climates where plants are sufficiently irrigated. Attaining a very large natural form, it makes a superior ornamental background shrub.

This plant blooms heavily in very large bright golden single flowers at the branch...
